Subject: requests for improvement
Two of my remarks about the current OCaml implementation:

-          About the Random module: could the function self_init () take
something else as the current system date as the only entropy source? I
think there are more valuable sources than the current time on today's

-          Any plans about giving the possibility to spread the definition
across more than one source file. Sometimes modules are more than 300 lines,
so I would like to be able to split it over two or more files. Currently
there is a one-to-one relationship between files and modules. As far as I
know, OCaml is the only language to have such a particular constraint.


Any insightful comment would be greatly appreciated.
